Roger in shock after loss

Anyone get that feeling when he spoke to Bud? He said Rafa took him out of his game and that he changed tactics from Rome because of the slower court.

Rafa, on the other hand, was the one who cried.

When he wins Wimbledon again this year , he will cry . Grass makes him more emotional, and Rod Laver too

In the interview, he seemed disappointed with the way he played.

Re: Roger in shock after loss

i was disappointed for the way both of them played esp roger. He should have taken advantage of teh fact that nadal was wa behind the baseline most of the tim, didnt play his best and didnt play the big points as well as he usually does.

Agree. His BH broke down after that 1-0 game int he 2nd set and then Nadal played really well and took a stranglehold of the match.

Re: Roger in shock after loss

His performance today was shocking indeed.
I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
One UE after another for three sets.
And it seemed like he was in a coma and didn't know how to wake up.
Didn't even try hard to wake up, imo, even after he broke Nadal for 5-all in the fourth.
It was so strange.

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)

Re: Roger in shock after loss

It wasn't at all strange to me, as I was clearly seeing what is happening
First set feeling: Raffa devastated, Federer wins is strait sets.
Second set feeling: Federer gives everything away buy dropping his serve from 40/0. This was a DISASTER. He never recovered.
Third set: he hanged in there waiting for a chance, but when it came at 0/40 on Nadal's serve he messes up again, so instead of seving out for the set he has nothing. This was too much to take. He lost the set, then continued to dully give some resistance to Raffa without any gameplan and enthusiasm. He was just hanging in there wondering if Raffa will maybe mess up, but he didn't

But he prooved again to everyone that he is the best. When he steppes up the gas, he leaves everyone on any surface in the cloud of dust

All so

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open

I knew that was coming all along. I saved my self from such a pitiful sight. I only tuned in during the 4th set when he was 3-5 down and then watched a bit of the 4-5 game in the fourth. Hopefully he'l rebound from this during this grass court season.

Re: Roger in shock after loss

Rafa had tears of joy when the Spanish Anthem was playing. If Roger cried, it would have been out of frustration. I would love to see Rafa win Wimbledon! Anything is possible?

Re: Roger in shock after loss

After the first set Rafa recovered and as Fed said it. Fed tried everything but Nadal was too good. Now we have to wait for other surfaces and I hope that Rafa will improve on time to give us more of these great shows.

Re: Roger in shock after loss

Tears of joy from Nadal, I thought it was very sweet to see Nadal all emotional and crying.

I think Roger was very sad, but players don't cry as often when they lose a grand slam vs. when they win it, at least in public. Roger was obviously dissapointed by his performance. He let Nadal control the match, it was all Nadal from the 2nd set up to the winning point. Roger had a spur in the last few sets, but it wasn't enough.

RAFAEL NADAL

eternally rooting for:

HAAS | FEDERER | SANTORO | HEWITT | RODDICK | SAFIN

enjoying:

TURSUNOV | AGASSI | ROBREDO | MONFILS | BLAKE

Never mind that Nadal does not yet have the game for Wimbledon--I don't think he has the confidence to win it anytime soon. I'm pulling for Roddick this year just because he's been so close...not that Roddick has a bunch of confidence either....

Re: Roger in shock after loss

he was sad probably, not only at losing to Nadal in his 1st RG final...
but who knows when another chance like this will ever happen again - to win RG and have held all at once, the slam...
maybe never.
